It’s been known that Nevada Smiths, that lovable East Village soccer bar where grown men went at six am to watch mostly scoreless games, would have to vacate its current Third Avenue home. And as EV Grieve recently noted, they’re moving into a new location, a block north in between 12th and 13th, on Third Ave. But then Nevada Smiths announced via its own site that tonight would be the watering hole’s last hurrah until the new year.
“Our old home’s almost done now with developers poised to demolish most of the block and replace our place, and yours, with a new luxury apartment,” the flyer posted on Nevada Smiths site reads. “Never fear though, we’re not that easy to get rid of.” In the interim, the Nevada Smiths management will be organizing soccer-viewing sessions in other locales, places they’ll post on their extremely active Facebook page. Stop by and say goodbye to the longtime haunt, especially if you’d like to end your mini-vacation with a hangover.
